The recently agreed UK-EU Trade Agreement between the UK and the EU does not include Gibraltar.
The Chief Minister of Gibraltar, Hon Fabian R Picardo QC MP, made a statement regarding the future relationship with the EU “The New Year’s Eve ‘In-Principle’ Agreement: A Post Brexit Deal for Gibraltar 31 December, 2020”
My dear fellow Gibraltarians,
This New Year’s Eve, we can look forward with expectation and hope. We believe we may now be able to re-set our relationship with Spain and cast it in a more positive light going forward. After many months of hard work, we have reached an in principle agreement with the United Kingdom and Spain.
The agreement is for a proposed framework for a UK/European Union Agreement or Treaty on Gibraltar’s future relationship with the EU. That agreement will govern the relationship between Gibraltar and the European Union in areas of EU competence. The British Ambassador in the UK Mission to the European Union has written to the President of the European Commission confirming the UK’s desire that such an agreement be negotiated and that the EU should seek a mandate for that purpose. Spain has confirmed that it has also now contacted the European Commission for that purpose.
